Just for Fun!

Not happy! Don't worry, candy was on its way!

I thought about removing the drool here, but then it would take away his personality.

I love his face here. He is as pure as he looks!

Our latest assignment was to take a portrait of someone doing something that describes them. Our praise and worship team was so kind to let me come and take pics during a practice. My favorite however were these of my happily ever afters. I love the 1st one. I love their hands. Charlie is focused on the leadership Seth is giving as to say to him, "This is way to life my son."

I just can't get enough!

I love these footed pjs and the way Charlie loves to look at himself in the mirror.

One of the funniest things in our lives is the way Charlie zones out when watching tv. I think a tornado could come through and he wouldn't even know.
P.S. The same has been said about me! HeHe!!

Diffuse Glow

We touched on the subject of lighting in my class just before Spring Break. We learend about diffuse light vs specular light. Specular light has harsh shadows and occurs more in sun light or direct light. Diffuse light produces softer shadows and a nice glow, if you will. I finally discovered the difuse filter in PSE 8. All these things seem to come to me just before I give up. In these pics, I wanted to give a soft, tender glow. I am curious to see what you think. In the last pic, I saturated it a bit as I found the diffuse filter also washes out the color, so it is a bit more choppy than the other two.

Waiting on Grandma!

Again with the hair! I just can't resist! His head looks extraordinarily big here to me. At this glance, I am glad I had a c-section!

Looking for Grandma!

Scoping out the surroundings.

Checking out the other side.

Is she coming yet?

When Charlie and I arrived at the airport, we discovered Grandma's plane was delayed a bit. I found it wise to wait this out in the car rather than the airport, which was unusually crowded. Me being me, decided to take advantage of the moment and grab some pics! One can never over document one's life!

Mesmorized, yet again.

We spend A LOT of time watching Nick Jr. In between each cartoon a moose and his owl friend come on. Charlie hears that moose and comes a running. He's put for the duration. He's not so
interested in the duration of the cartoons, but that moose really does a number on him!

I like this one best...I think?

I will post more of the pics from our most recent session. So far, I think this one is my fav. I took so many, it's hard to tell. I was so proud of myself in the narrowing down. I started with over 320 and narrowed down to 60. As I post them, let me know the ones you like best!

This is how we roll!

Watching the action.

Too curious to stay put!

Note: we are happy people. The simple things in life make us smile. You know, like having your dogs clean your child's high chair. I mean, I wasn't having to do it, right?

Smiling at his clean up crew!
All in!

Looking for Elvis! Isn't that face precious?

Concho wants some sooo bad!
Still waiting for a bite, or a crumb, or a promising lead of the sorts!

Both of them have their eyes on the last piece!

So cute...they are all checking each other out! See the two noses on the right?
Taking a moment to look at me! Ahhh, I sigh at this face!

Finger licking good!
